It was about time for some books to go. Thanks god there is a book sale happening soon, as I’m incapable of throwing away an intact book.
Two of these piles are adult fiction books – unwanted gifts or hand-me-downs. They’ve been hiding in a cabinet for years, never having been read or read only once with no intention to pick them up again. The other half are children’s books. They stand for the opposite: Having been read so many times that I could’ve easily recited them in my sleep.
